A decent tumbler makes turning easier, but if you want compost quickly and are happy to do the work, it appears that you might as well stick with a standard compost heap or bin, as long as it’s easy to access the compost to turn it. It’s much cheaper and gives you more control over the amount of compost you get.

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a compost bin or heap, you can make your own compost pile. You’ll need a few things to get started. First, make sure you have a large enough container to hold all of your compost.

If you’re using a container that’s too small, the pile will be too big and you won’t be able to move it around as easily as you would if it were larger. A good rule of thumb is to have at least a half-gallon or larger container for each 1,000 square feet of space you plan to use for composting.

How often should I turn my compost tumbler?

If you have a compost pile, you should turn it a little more often. Two to three times a week is sufficient according to most composting experts. When you turn it, make sure you mix the compost with the soil by turning it more than once.

If you don’t want to compost your own compost, you can purchase compost from a local garden center or garden supply store. You can also buy compost that has been composted by someone else.

Should there be bugs in my compost tumbler?

The organic matter in the compost pile can be broken down by earthworms, sow bugs, pill bugs and other arthropods. If you don’t have earthworms in your garden, you can buy them at your local garden center or online. If you do have them, make sure to use them in a way that is beneficial to the soil and not harmful to your plants.

Can you continuously add to a compost tumbler?

Keep adding your ingredients until your tumbler is almost full. If the contents won’t mix, don’t fill it all the way. Then stop adding new stuff. When you’re ready to add it to the compost pile, the time it takes to convert that stuff to compost starts. If you don’t have a composting machine, you can still make your own compost.

Should compost tumbler be in sun or shade?

I don’t know if my compost pile should be in the shade or in the sun. If you want to speed up the composting process, put your compost pile in the sun. The sun increases the temperature, so the organisms will be able to grow more quickly.

It depends on the size of your pile. If you have a large pile, it will take about two weeks to fully compost. However, if you only have one or two large piles, you can compost in as little as two days.

How did worms get into my compost tumbler?

Worms can be easily identified by the presence of a dark spot on the underside of the worm’s body. This is a sign that the worms have been in the compost for a long time. If you are unsure whether you have worms or not, it is best to contact your garden centre for advice.
